Women in the Economy: The Gulf Region Outlook
Diversity is a business imperative. Increased diversity and inclusion are directly tied to improved business outcomes and a better bottom line. But what of the women who form part of the businesses? What are their experiences as employees, what are their needs, and what can businesses do to ensure that they retain the women they employ?
This report is a culmination of data gathered from business professionals from 11 economic sectors and 5 countries, and offers an overview of the nature and extent of women’s experiences in the Gulf Region’s workforce. It examines their core concerns and offers businesses strategic solutions to support women and to improve on their wider diversity and inclusion activities.
